Accelerator - Consumer (2021)

Consumer Goods Accelerator Application

The Consumer Goods Accelerator is an intensive 10-week program designed to help emerging CPG companies grow.


The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the consumer good industry, and small businesses especially have been challenged to weather new challenges. As a result, building and growing a consumer-packaged product looks different today than even a few years ago. With an increasing amount of innovation and competition in the space, having direct knowledge and connections in the industry is critical to long-term success.


The Consumer Goods Accelerator is designed to help emerging consumer-packaged good brands mitigate risk and rapidly expand their growth. The program is led by Proof's team of industry experts joined by a range of specialists and experienced entrepreneurs who will provide invaluable insights and connections. The intensive program covers a spectrum of areas, including (but not limited to): finance, operations, marketing, distribution, fundraising, and growth planning.
